The U.K.’s much-adored crime series returns with a new face in Midsomer Murders Season 16, airing on KMOS-TV beginning November 5 at 7 p.m. , 2020.DS Charlie Nelson (Gwilym Lee, Bohemian Rhapsody) will be busy, as the inhabitants of Midsomer county are not nearly as charming as the villages in which they reside.
Barnaby and Nelson barely have time to introduce themselves before they are thrown into an allegedly haunted manor, where a man has been fatally stabbed by an antique sword. The cases don’t get any less bizarre, as the two detectives contend with killers employing medieval torture, stunt planes, and wild boars.
Nelson isn’t the only new face Barnaby welcomes into Midsomer, as the finale marks the first appearance of his newborn daughter, Betty. Midsomer Murders is a classic whodunit drama with an established pedigree, arguably Britain’s best-selling TV drama export.
